Poem 37

What simple things that a man forgets
see?

The world is beautiful my darling
and we who didn’t know
don’t have a chair
for life to sit beside us

So it wasn’t for no reason that for so long
singing of nightingales
seemed like delicate crystal laughters

Mohammad Shams Langeroodi (1950)
(translation: Sina Fazelpour)

Arno Roesems brengt via de saxofoon verschillende stijlen en culturen samen in een concert als een collage van losse gedichten, elk geschreven voor het hout dat deze gedichten tot stand brengt.

Légende, Op. 66 – Florent Schmitt (1870-1958)
Shams – Jean Denis Michat (1971)
La Lune en Paradis II – Jun Nagao (1964)
Buku – Jacob ter Veldhuis (1951)
